What about the books?

Stross writes in a variety of sub-genres and styles. While a few of his novels are stand-alones, most of them fall in series.

NOTE: There are links to places you can buy the books (below). I link to the cheapest paper edition and the Kindle ebook edition. The “Crib sheet” links point to extensive discussions of the writing process and ideas behind the books; may contain spoilers.

(Sorry, but I can’t provide a comprehensive set of “buy the book” links pointing to foreign editions and multiple ebook formats: with over 20 books already in the list, curating this FAQ would go from difficult to nightmarish—at last count it contained 84 links.)
